What about the other "tunings" they played? Beer Barrell Polka (my fav), Funiculi Funicula, Tico-Tico, The Merry-Go-Round Brokedown, Spring Song, Sidewalks Of New York? I heard Jerry play the opening to Tennesse Waltz the other day as well. There so many non-GD songs that you'd hear one or more members on stage play between songs, but these "tunings" always added another aspect of spontaneity to shows that I found to be a lot of fun to hear.

try the Beer Barrel Polka played at this show. One warm summer evening while driving around w/friends smoking some AWESOME hash (boy it's been a LONG time), someone put this tape in. It was Loose Lucy that started playing 1st. By the time LL was done the hash had really shattered the time-space continuum---and then BBP started. It was the 1st time hearing it at all---and I've never been the same since. BBP was played quite a few times in '73, w/a few instances in '74 & '77. But Funiculi Funicula was played more often in '77.
